Washington (CNN)Special counsel Robert Mueller's office said Friday that former Trump campaign official Rick Gates is still helping "several ongoing investigations" and isn't ready to be sentenced. "Gates continues to cooperate with respect to several ongoing investigations, and accordingly the parties do not believe it is appropriate to commence the sentencing process at this time," the filing said, pointing out that the situation had not changed since the previous update in January. There was heavy speculation that Gates' cooperation would wind down this week, given the conclusion of the federal cases against his longtime partner Paul Manafort. Gates was a star witness in that case and testified against Manafort, who was sentenced by two judges to serve a total of 7.5 years in prison for financial fraud.

Mueller, in U.S. court filing, says multiple probes continue
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. Special Counsels Office on Friday asked a court to delay sentencing for U.S. President Donald Trumps former deputy campaign chairman, Rick Gates, amid ongoing investigations stemming from the Russia investigation.
In a filing with the U.S. District Court in Washington, U.S. Special Counsel Robert Mueller cited Gates continued cooperation with multiple probes and asked permission to update the judge on the case again by May 14.
Mueller has declared everybody is now a suspect and a target..including us for reading this on FR./s
This won’t be just fruit of the poisonous tree; it will be fruit of the poisonous orchard.
so it’s safe to assume the scope has been expanded to include the inaugural committee
somehow that falls under “collusion to win the election” or Firing Comey
Perhaps Mueller needs to be weaned off of the money test. I wonder what his ttotal take home pay is at right about now...
Wasn’t Gates an FBI asset in the past?
If they put every activity of the President and everyone around him through a proctology exam for two years looking for anything even slightly shady and the best they can do is get people for unrelated crimes from 10 years ago and a weird “lying to the FBI” crime where they FBI says he didn’t lie then I have to say that this has to be the most ethical administration in 100 years. And so far it’s looking that way.
I thought weissman was stepping down and mueller was wrapping up? /s
I know someone whose family was devastated by the prosecutorial misconduct and brutality of Mueller's snake: Andrew Weissmann.
If this vermin coward cannot get to you, he will threaten your wife, your children, and your family.
He will throw you into solitary confinement at a maximum prison facility, or threaten your lawyers. The Deep State loves him, and calls him a "pitbull." No. He is a pig. And he deserves to be in prison.
Now we know why the Inaugural Committee is being investigated. Gates admitted to stealing $3 from Paul Manafort. How much money did he steal while on the committee?
So well said.
A few years ago something like Mueller would have been beyond believable in a Robert Ludlum or Tom Clancy novel. Now this horror is an everyday event.
Inaugural Committee? Trump had to win before there was an inaugural committee.
Mueller is shitting into the wind and the wind has turned against him.
In fact, he might even be indicted for lying to Congress, the FISA Court, illegal prosecutions, denying exculpatory information to defense counsels (related to the Boston crime family/Bulger affair) and led to the jailing of 4 innocent people (and the in-jail death of two of them), etc.
Also eligible for congressional subpoenas and grand jury subpoenas/indictments are:
Weissmann - the worst
McCabe - bad and insane
Sally Yates - obstruction of justice
Loretta Lynch - obstruction of justice; misprision of a felony (most would qualify for this); dereliction of duty; unethical behavior, etc.
Bruce Ohr to a lesser degree but his wife Nellie to a greater degree
Christopher Steele if extradited
Clapper definitely lying to Congress
Brennan - lying to Congress and being a security risk and totally insane
Buzzfeed and personnel
Any DOJ attorney who lied to the FISA COURT judges
Any DOJ/FBI officials who “set up” Carter Page, Papadopoulous, even Mannafort and Gen. Flynn with perjury traps.
Illegal threats against family members of Mannafort, Gates, Rogers, Corsi, etc.
Anyone connected to Hillary and Bill Clinton, their Foundation/criminal organization, John Podesta, the DNC, Debbie Wasserman-Schulz as the head of the DNC (and her Pakistani ITgate security breach scandals), Nancy Pelosi as the head of the DNC, Tom Perez (for being alive),Fusion GPS, Crowdstrike, Hillary’s server destroyers and anyone who aided her in destroying subpoenaed documents/equipment.
There are many more secondary players too.
In the name of fairness, let’s send them all to jail for a long time, just to be sure that justice is served.
He’ll never take me alive.
We can just say to Mueller, my lawyer has met with your people and my case will be looked into right after you finish all the anti-Trump ones.
That buys us decades of delay. Just don’t agree to “billable hours” from your lawyer until after the delay has ended.
He knows better than to bill me.
Good attitude. He likes to keep walking on both legs.
